Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Monterey Secondary College. I hope you enjoy finding out about our close-knit, intimate school community.

It’s my pleasure to provide information on the excellent facilities, programs and staff that support Monterey students to achieve outstanding academic, sporting and personal growth.

A website only provides a small window into a school’s culture, and I encourage you to find out more about how we support the development of our students by joining me on one of our school tours.

Monterey personalises the way we support our students to grow and develop into successful and productive community members. Monterey has a unique ability to notice, support and extend each and every young person that we work with.

It is an incredibly exciting time to be a member of the Monterey School Community with a range of significant improvements underway at the school. New building works supported by the Frankston North Education Plan provide more state-of-the-art facilities for our outstanding teaching and learning approach as well as a home for the school’s innovative new Sports Science Academy and opportunities for a range of practical, hands on learning experiences.

This focus on extending students’ academic, sporting and personal development comes alongside our deep understanding of the importance of student wellbeing. At Monterey we know that the first step in supporting student learning is to ensure they feel safe, supported, included and connected with the broader school community. Our wellbeing framework helps us support students holistically so everyone at Monterey has a positive and stable foundation to their time in secondary school.

Our values of Excellence, Respect and Teamwork prepare students to enter their post-secondary lives as productive, happy and healthy members of their community. I hope you enjoy learning more about our fantastic college community.
